For Next Weapon in Anti-Protest Arsenal, US Military Building Plasma Gun Capable of Vaporizing Human Flesh

(CD— From wood batons to stun batons to water cannons to sound cannons to. . .  frickin’ plasma lasers that can “vaporize” your skin?

Recent reporting out of the Pentagon reveals that the U.S. military is working on perfecting what they called a Scalable Compact Ultra-short Pulse Laser System (SCUPLS)—or plasma gun, for short—intended for mounting on a truck or a tank.

Billed as the military’s latest “crowd control” technology, what this has typically meant is a new “non-lethal” weapon designed for use by militaries or police forces against unruly demonstrators or those standing against powerful state actors or corporate forces.

According to U.S. government documents, the aim of the ongoing project is to develop “a lightweight and energy efficient next-generation Ultra-Short Pulse Laser (USPL) system that can produce sustainable and controllable plasma at range capable of inducing a full spectrum of scalable non-lethal effects.” As a so-called “scalable” weapon, it will be able to shoot not only piercing sounds, but also “burn off” or “vaporize” human skin, and ultimately could be used to kill its target.

As the Daily Mail recently explained, the weapon will be able to “produce a range of effects”:

  • At the lowest setting, the weapon can produce speech, and it will be able to warn people up to 3,200 feet (1,000m) away by delivering voice messages.
  • When it gets closer, the weapon will  deliver a ‘Flash-bang effect’ by sending an ‘acoustic blast of ~ 165+ dB at minimum distance of 100 meters’.
  • It will also be able to send a ‘Flash blind effects (6-8 million candela)’ momentarily blinding people at minimum distance of 100 meters
  • The highest setting of the current model will let loose ‘Full scalable thermal ablative effects’ through common natural clothing (i.e., fabric, denim, leather, etc.) at minimum distance of 100 meters. This would painfully vaporize the outer layer of skin – rather than burning it will be turned into gas.

Vaporizing skin? Yes, that’s precisely what “scalable thermal ablative effects” means.

Ultimately, as the government’s program plan lays out, the weapon would “have direct application to many other U.S. Government agencies as well as civilian law enforcement. The Department of Homeland Security, Department of State, Department of Justice, the Secret Service, and Customs and Border Protection also desire this full spectrum of effects capability. The ability to non-lethally interdict a threatening person or persons has utility in many security and crowd control applications to include several municipal applications.”

Of course, what this often means is using such a weapon—as has long been true with other “crowd control” technologies—in order to intimidate or put down public protest or organized demonstrations that are seen as threatening to powerful interests.

Trump officials vow ‘America first, 5G first’

“Kudlow also boasted of the Trump administration’s efforts to encourage U.S. economic growth, particularly through corporate tax cuts. “We’re crushing it, we’re absolutely crushing it,” Kudlow said of the overall U.S. economy. “And I want the 5G to be in that crushing it thing.”

Artificial Intelligence Used to Identify Social Engineering Risks

“Our Virtual Risk Officer and Advanced Reporting features are the latest in a long line of innovations designed to look deeply into an organization and provide the most accurate view of the effectiveness of their security awareness training program. We’ve integrated a deep learning neural network that evaluates how risk changes over time within an organization, which helps cybersecurity professionals measure how their security awareness program performs.”

5G Network Uses Same EMF Waves As Pentagon Crowd Control System

“This kind of technology, which is in many of our homes, actually interacts with human skin and eyes. The shocking finding was made public via Israeli research studies that were presented at an international conference on the subject last year. Below you can find a lecture from Dr. Ben-Ishai of the Department of Physics at Hebrew University. He goes through how human sweat ducts act like a number of helical antennas when exposed to these wavelengths that are put out by the devices that employ 5G technology.”

5G and the IOT: Scientific Overview of Human Health Risks

“Published peer reviewed science already indicates that the current wireless technologies of 2G, 3G and 4G – in use today with our cell phones, computers and wearable tech – creates radiofrequency exposures which poses a serious health risk to humans, animals and the environment.”

The militarization of local law enforcement

The militarization of our local law enforcement agencies now that Homeland Security is running the show, has many communities and individuals sounding the alarm over the escalating violence issuing from these agencies as former public servants have been transformed into public threats.  As public unrest spreads across not only the US but also the globe, the ramping up of military weapons to be used by law enforcement against their own communities, continues to become ever more lethal and is provided routinely for use on protestors and other public gatherings.

Two new weapons have recently surfaced not only here in the US but also in Britain.  The British will be testing out their brand spankin’ new  SMU 100 Laser gun.  What is that you ask?  According to the UK Telegraph:

The laser, resembling a rifle and known as an SMU 100, can dazzle and incapacitate targets up to 500m away with a wall of light up to three metres squared. It costs £25,000 and has an infrared scope to spot looters in poor visibility.

Looters?  How many looters are there running around  Britain that would warrant investing in these weapons?  Have you even heard of any instance in the last ten years where “looters” were ravaging Britain?  Twenty years? Anybody?  Gosh…..I wonder who they are going to use these laser guns on.  Hmmmmm. More

The military has new toy: An electromagnetic beam to par boil you!

They are so damn proud of this Active Denial System. Originally tested in Iraq and Afghanistan on civillians who were protesting the occupation, the ADS can cause spontaneous bleeding from ears, nose and mouth.  In effect, it will microwave human beings.  Far less messy than shooting their brains out for dissenting, this is the ultimate weapon for “plausible deniability”. In other words, you may know they used this weapon on you, you just won’t be able to prove it. 

The system was designed for actual use here in the US against the civillian population.  Many major cities in the US now have armoured vehicles and tanks and some are rumored to have the ADS already installed.  And the military…that would be OUR military…is so damn proud of this.  ADS is far more popular with the military than the sonic sound weapon used on the Pennsylvania protesters.  Fox news seems equally as thrilled with this torture device.  Go figure.

The miltarization of our domestic police forces.  If you can watch this 6 minute video and not come away sick at your stomach and wondering just what the government has planned for us.

How about long range accoustic devices for crowd control compliance and “influencing” behavior.

And:  How ’bout those “active denial systems” which heat your core temp just like a microwave?

How does a high school drug raid, that produced no drugs, by police in swat gear sound to you?

Take a look.
